OC PROST
A Gathering for Travel Executives

Established in 1986, OC Prost is a members-only social and networking organization made up of executives in the travel industry with representatives from the airlines, travel agencies, hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, tourist boards and other related companies.

We meet monthly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at one of Orange County's premier hotels or restaurants from 11:30A to 2P.

Although not affiliated, OC PROST shares many of the same objectives with the Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas and Inland Empire PROST organizations and schedules joint meetings from time to time.
